Iris by U2 is one of those songs which is full of emotion. This song is Bono’s reflection of going through life having lost his mother as a child. The lyrics “hold me close, hold me close and don’t let go”, display his desperation for a continued relationship with his mother.

Often we scream at God in desperation to hold us close and he does. I believe God’s promise to Joshua is for us today also (Joshua 1:5). Think through the stories you know in the Bible and see how God never left His people or broke His promise. Hold on to the truth that God will never let go of you.
